"March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb". As the members of Village Artisans were discussing themes for their next Open Community Art Show, they wondered how many different ways the very creative artists of Yellow Springs could interpret this phrase in their work?
The challenge to all community artists is to express your vision of “The Lion and The Lamb” in a piece of 2 or 3 dimensional work for the March/April exhibit in the Village Artisans Lobby Gallery. All are invited to use your imagination and become part of the next gallery show. The spring theme may be interpreted broadly.
The deadline for entries is March 1, 2014. Entry forms will be available at Village Artisans, 100 Corry Street. They may also be found at the Arts Council Gallery, Unfinished Creations and online at A $10.00 entry fee is requested and there is a 15% commission for any sold pieces.
Village Artisans will host an Artist Reception on Friday, March 21, 2014 from 6-9 pm. There will be refreshments and fun. Exhibitors, their friends and family and the entire community is invited to view the artwork and share snacks and a good time.
Village Artisans has hosted several Open Community Gallery Exhibits in the past several years. “Dare to be Square” and “Bound to be Round” had a great response from the community and have offered local artists a professional gallery venue for their work. Based on this success, “The Lion and the Lamb” and additional shows have been planned throughout the coming year. Look for future announcements.
